In Italy the right to worship without discrimination is enshrined in the constitution. There are 1.35 million Muslims in Italy and yet, officially, only eight mosques in the whole country. Consequently, the Muslim population has been relegated to a huge number of makeshift places of worship; garages, shops, warehouses and old factories have become host to prayer. Hidden Islam offers a peek inside Italy's invisible Islam. Photographer Nicolò Degiorgis explores the various temporary mosques in Northeast Italy, where anti-Islamic campaigns and the shortage of worship spaces are particularly acute. Seemingly dull black-and-white images of the diverse building exteriors are printed on folded pages, but upon opening the gatefold, full-color scenes inside these mosques are revealed. The images are arranged by building type (shop, warehouse, apartment).

Book Description Rorhof, Bolzano, Italy, 2014. Hardcover. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: new. First Edition, First Printing. SIGNED COPY Rorhof, Bolzano 2014. Hardcover in dust jacket. First Edition, First Printing. Introduction by Martin Parr. Editing by Nicoló Degiorgis and Martin Parr. 45 gate folds pp. 90 Design by Nicoló Degiorgis and Walter Hutton. SIGNED by Nicolo Degiorgis. From the introduction by Parr: "Consider these facts. In Italy the right to worship, without discrimination, is enshrined within the constitution. There are 1.35 million Muslims in Italy and yet, officially, only eight mosques in the whole country. One consequence is that the Muslim population have accumulated a huge number of makeshift and temporary places of worship. These are housed in a variety of buildings including lock ups, garages, shops, warehouses and old factories. This shortage of places to worship is particularly acute in north east Italy - where the photographer Nicolò Degiorgis lives - home to many anti-Islamic campaigns headed by the right wing party Lega Nord. The dull images of the many and diverse buildings that house the makeshift mosques are printed on folded pages. You open up the gatefold to reveal the scenes inside the mosques, shot in full colour. The size of the gatherings varies, from large crowds who sometimes pray outside to a small room full to bursting, or to intimate groups of two or three Muslims. Degiorgis provides a fascinating glimpse of hidden world and leaves the conclusions about this project entirely in our own hands". Seller Inventory # 237
